Topic - Camping Lanterns

Sam_in_Leeds - on 11 Mar 2013

Thinking about doing quite a bit more camping this summer than ever before and made me think I'd like to splash out on a lantern.

I'll be camping solo for quite a bit of the time so suspect I'll be in my tent for quite a long time.

So, it it better to go for a gas-lantern or an LED lantern?

I was looking at this one in Go-Outdoors but have no idea how long the gas would last? On a low enough to read light, how long would a 500 canister last?

I'm looking for something mainly for reading/pottering about in a tent.

I've got a Petzl Mio XP headtorch I can use for things like cooking but find the LED light quite harsh in front of my fave for extended reading sessions.

My camping stove is a gas one too, could I use the same cartridge for lighting/eating or would I get through too much gas?

I'm definitely not going for a petrol one - I worry enough about filling my car up.
